Help!!! Can someone help me find my missing swap???

PLEASE NOTE: I did NOT send my swap for January 20th late.( Magickal Stocking Stuffer, January). In fact I sent it 10 days early and I was rated with a heart before the last day to send. However, I archived the swap and forgot to mark it as sent. Now, despite my best efforts I'm unable to view it in my archives to mark it as sent. Therefore, I'm being banned from joining swaps, evidently others can view what I can not.


Please know I'm delighted by each and every one of your kind and generous ratings. I'm not by nature RUDE, or uncaring. I just have limited internet access hence, I've not given an individual THANK YOU to each of you. Please understand, it's not through neglect or insensitivity, only necessity and budget constraints that I must conserve my internet access. Every one of you has made my life a little brighter, a bit less lonely, and oh so much more fun. Please know you are all fabulous individuals, and I'm eternally grateful for your presence in my life. THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.

While I'm no longer a lithe and lovely libertine. Was I ever? I am still a libertine, (not in the sense of a person without morals and sexual principles) but, one who is free thinking with regards to religion...and politics, and...well you get my drift. LOL. So swiftly do the days flow by that before we know it, our lives are half spent...then we look in the mirror and see a stranger looking back at us. Where did I go? And who is this in front of me, staring back? It's still me, but a bit weather worn, and bit less handsome, less agile. What you see is certainly not what you get. I am still vibrant, loving, more sensible, extremely more compassionate...kinder to those whose paths I cross. I realize that there are many advantages to aging. None of which have to do with my exterior dimensions and how many gray hairs and wrinkles I have accrued. I am a worthy, well established woman. I have become who I always wanted to be. I'll continue to grow and become to my very last day. I live an authentic life, filled with joy and adventure.

I'm writing this for all of you who've recently told yourself you're going old...how old would you be if you didn't know how many years you'd lived? You are NOT growing old...you are growing more fabulous and genuine with each day, and each year that passes. Grow into those wrinkles, revel in your gray hair, and have a ball. Dance in the rain, sing out loud, pick daisies and LIVE! YOU ARE AWESOME!

REMEMBER: Live each day authentically, whatever you do, make sure you do it with all your heart, as you've given up a day of your life for it. Stay strong and carry on. Blessed Be.

...If you haven't received a rating or a swap from me. I will respond ASAP. And thanks again to all you wonderful swappers.

P.S. If I've sent an item to you with incorrect postage, please let me know, and I will gladly send you postage to cover your loss. Thanks for reading all of this. .

Favorite Crafts

I have diverse interests...Art Journaling, making art dolls, altered art, Zentangles, furniture painting, sewing, crochet and the list goes on. Dotee dolls, pincushions and just about anything else. .
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS. I would really like to receive any of the following... Thank You in advance.

Stickers, any except teacher reward.

Fimo, sculpy, or primo clay, any color.

Pretty papers that go together to make flip books, and other cool stuff for crafting them...yet another first timer at this craft. Where have I been?

Project Life cards and stuff. I'm just getting into it, I know I'm a late Bloomer. Lol.

Punches you no longer use, but are still usable. I have exactly 3.

Washi tape, love it!

Double sided papers, at least 6 x 6".

Would appreciate some ADDRESS LABELS, that would be wonderful. I've no printer.

Cool paperclips, flags, & stickies.

POSTCARDS! I love to do the postcard swaps, But don't travel much.

STAMPS:, used, old, whatever, old coins from other countries. LOVE me some stamps.

Bits and Bobs for making junk journals and for making my planner cool.

EPHEMERA: the real deal or reproductions, I enjoy vintage and shabby chic, eclectic items.

PAGES OR SHEETS OF WALLPAPER... Old art from books that are not in great shape anymore...Unusable but brightly colored, and patterned childrens' book pages, the larger the better to make envies out of. OR...just a couple really beautiful pages.

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT destroy books, however, when a book has been damaged or partially destroyed, rather than eliminate it, I REPURPOSE the salvagable pages and try to make something beautiful out of what remains.

Old photos, Old posters, old maps, book pages in foreign languages, note cards old and new, and valentines. Any kind of food, baking/cooking stickers, cut outs etc. for my scrap/recipe book.

Things I like from nature: Butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, Otters are one of my favs. Also Big cats, i.e. lions and tigers, panthers, etc. I love dragons, although they are mythical. I also have a love of wolves and large breed dogs such as Irish Wolfhounds, Great Danes, Dobermans, Leonbergers, etc. I have an appreciation for all animals.

I'm also into natural remedies, herb crafting, wild food foraging, etc. Anything related to these topics.

I collect small wind up toys of any type. They're not expensive, usually a couple bucks. Tea cups and saucers, fairies and gnomes, and oh, if you find a smooth flat rock in your yard or on your travels, I'll take it! I love to paint rocks...

Eclectic Wicca. Air sign. Accumulate sticks, stones, seeds, (flower and veggie) Heirloom and non-gmo. Green wytch, wildcrafter, nature lover, studying herbalism. Against violence, prejudice, cruelty, and hatefulness. Believe that your religion is your business and between you and your God, and so is mine. I won't preach or try to convert you, so please respect my wishes and do the same. Goddesses: Brigid, Quan Yin, and a couple more. Like I said, eclectic. Love candles, incense, feathers, shells, odd pieces of wood, seed pods, dried flowers. Anything else from nature that you've found or harvested. Just no bones, carcasses or fur. I have too deep a respect for the earths creatures to desecrate their bodies or their final resting place.

Guess that's it for now...phew.

Other Favorites

Like my crafting interests, my musical, literary and movie choices are vast and varied. In books everything from Koontz, King, Stirling ) Patterson too, Evanovich (she makes me giggle out loud). I am an avid reader and author's are too many to mention.

MUSIC: OK, some classical, and new age. ROCK N ROLL!!! Stones, Doors, AC/DC, Iron Butterfly, Free/Bad Company, Janice Joplin (have ALL her music). Fleetwood Mac, Moody Blues, Joanie Mitchell...Almost any music except thrash and hard core rap.

MOVIES: Action and adventure, good comedies, and movies that make me think and/or make me cry. Some all time favorites: Practical Magic, Nanny Macphee, Hocus Pocus (sensing a vein here?) The War Horse, Life of Pi, and some oldies like Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, etc.

COLORS: Greens of all hues...kiwi, lime, emerald, seafoam, sage greens. Some deep blues, i.e: royal, ocean, cerullian. Also like rust, cinnamon...deep tones.


I realized that I hadn't stated any preferences regarding...foods, etc. And there aren't very many preferences, but there are a couple.

I HATE, abhor and despise anything with artificial sweeteners. No chemical sweetners please.
Also, I prefer not to receive religious items. No offense to anyone or their individual beliefs.


Kiddie stickers, I have no small children

1 or 2 sticky notes

Paper torn from a spiral notebook

Pieces cut from an old calender unless it's artsy, or has interesting artwork/pictures

I Don't do farm themes, ducks, chickens and fruit themes

In general, junky stuff.

I take a great pleasure in sending off my swaps...I write a note or card to everyone I send to, and I appreciate the same...

So with all of that...thanks for reading all of this clutter. .

Hi! Just letting everyone know in TOW group that there is a Goddess PC Swap going on, hope to see you sign up!

PrairieKittin on Jan 23, 2017:

I just dropped some stamps in the mail to you, to make up for the 'postage due'. I'm so sorry! I am also "of a certain age", so the stamps were from our generation... Janis and Jimi, and Elvis, of course! :-)
